Great base for exploring the Suffolk coast and nature reserves. We had a really peaceful and enjoyable few days, relaxing watching the wildlife, just what we needed. We hope to be back again. Thank you Jane and Paul for everything.

The well stocked shop opposite is useful. It is a walk to a lovely town and beach. There are so many nice shops and restaurants in southwold it's a lovely place for a holiday. Judy was also great to liaise with. We had a lovely time! Thank you.
